TAC Chancellor Gib Walton announces settlement in Jane Doe v. Kendall Graham, the Texas Annual Conference, et al.

D. Gibson Walton, Chancellor of the Texas Annual Conference announced this week the settlement of the lawsuit filed earlier this year by Jane Doe against former United Methodist pastor, Kendall Graham as well as the conference and several other related entities and individuals.

Walton states, "While the settlement is confidential, we hope and pray that it will be the beginning of a Holy healing process for the plaintiff and a heartfelt "lesson learned" for our Conference so that the facts of this case can never be repeated. We are thankful for the strong leadership of Bishop Huie, Dr. Stansell, and Rev. Williamson, and the wise counsel and assistance of our defense attorneys and insurance carriers, who cooperated in resolving this lawsuit at this early stage."
